Grey sqirrel, Coulthard Park, Cleadon Village, South Shields

Grey Squirrel

He may look reddish but I’m pretty sure he’s a grey. I found hi, under a tree in Coulthard Park in Cleadon Village near South Shields in a spot known locally as “Bluebell Wood”.

I’ve seen squirrels here before but they had a habit of running off just as soon as I raised the camera to the eye, not this time, he was too busy eating!

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 450mm lens, 1/250 second, f5.6, iso 200

    Nice color contrast. Well done.
